an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should understand that two-thirds of the defense budget pays for pay and salary, or pay and pension. and then you add to that food and wardrobe, and all the other things, and you only have a small portion going for weapons. but i am determined that if ever our men are called on, they should have the best that we can provide in the manner of tools and weapons. there has been reference to expensive spare parts, hammers costing $500. well, we are the ones who found those. i think we've given the american people back their spirit. i think there's an optimism in the land and a patriotism, and i think that we're in a position once again to heed the words of thomas paine, who said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again.'' >> than
the issues like the defense budget, and that's why it's issues like that and the ones the we don't even know about that make me weary of all of these street line projections that we are making in the future based on what things look like right now. >> do any of you want to address that point? >> that is the point about iran and the likelihood that we would actually enter into some sort of military action regardless of who wins. >> right now it's not clear to me. >> questions from the audience. yes, sir. >> microphone from the left. >> governor romney's that he wants to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's to hundred 50,000 jobs a month. in the past the u.s. has always been an exporter and that is what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] does anyone want to elaborate on that? >> i think we are in a completely different job market. the convention back in 1992 was if you work hard and play by the rules you should expect to be in the american middle class and i said condensation but that's basically what he's been
. >> anything else you would like to tell us that the defense committee would be helpful if we knew? >> all i would say is, you know, coming out from it in sitting here, back in london and not having access to all the things come you are driven by a perception of what is going on by the media. and i do think we are going to have some pretty difficult times ahead, that there's going to be corruption scandals and all of that, but i don't see anything that i've seen in the last year sufficiently bad to derail this strategy. and i do think we've got the right policy in terms of the time to go. we could come out earlier. he could come out earlier and in greece the risk. the corollary of that ip is listed under would be more likely. i don't think that's true. i think there comes a point where you've outlived your usefulness and coming out in an orderly a fashion by the end of 2014 will tip the balance. i think the taliban will find it difficult to sustain an insurgent the against the people when we remove their excuse they are fighting and that will tip the balance. so however difficult it is, it i
of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility. >> romney two days in a row out to link national security to the nation's sluggish recovery. he's seizi
. and now the arab minister of defense and chief of intelligence are new. to create the relationship and the situation between civilians and military societies. that was a transition that we organized well. we organized -- [indiscernible] that is something that not many people have experienced. i think that we should be trying to work on that direction. >> as the cold war was ending, there is a big meeting in the halls of congress. all of the senior military leaders from every european country and even the vatican was represented. i was the first speaker. . . >> what do you think about that in terms of hispanics? what is the origin -- is it really just about immigration or are there other factors? is it a deeper problem? how successful you think they could be? it does not look like it is happening now but may be in a few years. >> it is not a leap on immigration. but immigration is a gateway issue. do republicans get a hearing on their other use if they are good enough on immigration? not for all latino voters but for many. this is where mitt romney is not getting a hearing on many i
was the undersecretary of defense for policy at the pentagon. she was in the situation room with the president during the bin laden mission. now, michele i want to ask you this, because, the president of iran, mr. ahmadinejad, speaks today. but your former boss spoke yesterday. some people still slamming him for not taking a hard enough line on iran. listen to what "the wall street journal" said. they said, in his u.n. speech tuesday, president obama took a tougher than usual election-season line against iran. the cold reality is, that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. essentially saying actions speak louder than words. your reaction? >> i think that actions do speak louder than words. and if you look at the record of the president, he has led the international community in posing the most crippling sanctions ever imposed on any country. he has said that all options are on the table. i can tell you from my time in the pentagon that option is very real. it is important that we give
. but that should give us a little space for people to feel less defensive so that we can in fact root out those acts and behaviors. i wanted to ask a little bit about your work at the museum because obviously as you point out, these are imaginary representations of indian. talk to me about how the actual historic work that you're doing at the museum in d.c. helps to counter these images. >> well, we have museums in both washington and new york, and in both of these museums, we're trying to represent native cultures in an appropriate way. when i say in an appropriate way, what we really mean is that we involve the indigenous nations themselves in the representations of their cultures and histories. for many, many years, educational institutions, including museums, took it upon themselves to say we're the experts and we know who -- what these people are. we do a very different thing and most museums do now. say you can't have an authentic representation of native people unless you involve them in the creation of these exhibitions and programs. so in both of our museums, we're just trying to get p
darn good economy when we were playing bill clinton's tax rates and then it cuts defenses we haven't done in 30 years and entitlement programs. >> there's a few on the left that admit that going back to the clinton tax rates is not just for people who are 250, it's for everyone. >> i agree with that. >> $200 billion in the middle class from the bush tax cuts and $100 billion from the payroll tax cut -- >> it would do a lot. >> we should take our medicine, we should do it. >> that's where i think you're right. we have to -- any politician who says democrat or republican, we're going to get out of this without suffering some pain -- >> that's what we're hearing from paul krugman who says any democrat that goes along with the simpson/bowles. >> only for one reason, you shouldn't raise the -- you shouldn't raise the eligibility for medicare to 67. that makes no sense at all. but otherwise -- >> why doesn't it? >> because medicare is the only universal health care plan that we have in this country. and to raise it at the time when people are retiring is insane. and furthermore, the savi
at the budget you get down to military and defense spending or the bush tax cuts. >> are you talking about the bush tax cuts on all income levels? >> there is no qualification in that statement. what i said, and i still stand by, there are three things that doubled on national debt -- the bush tax cuts, -- >> the question is, do you want to expire them in total? there was no qualification. >> i am getting there. i think, and i still say, that we have to look at every single one of them and determine if we can use some of that money to pay down our national debt. we can lie to the american people or tell the truth. the truth is that those tax cuts, if we let them expire, will increase our national debt by almost one-half. >> what is your position, mr. cruz? >> i would not allow the bush tax cuts to expire. i'm curious. i will commend mr. sadler. he is running a campaign with a great deal of courage because he is running an unapologetically liberal campaign and is running in support of raising taxes, a host of liberal views. i commend him for his candor in that. i do not think those are the
